Charlie recently joined UpRising as the Birmingham Programme Coordinator in September 2018.

After graduating from Birmingham City University with a degree in Media & Communications, they went on to complete an ICS placement in Tanzania teaching employability skills to young people in schools and colleges. This amazing experience is what made them realise their passion for working with young people. They then went on to work for The Challenge and during this time completed the Environmental Leadership Programme, creating a Social Action Campaign to raise awareness of Climate Refugees. After this, they spent a year in Manchester working for the Social Mobility Foundation, supporting high achieving young people from low-economic backgrounds.
